That's because Chris Martin can actually sing, unlike Billy.

Why does Billy keep addressing "Lovers"? Who does he think listens to his music now?

"Fat ex-stoners in your forties, won't you mourn with me?"
"Fishy-fanny, drug-addled Christians, won't you mourn with me?"
"Infowars Subscribers, won't you mourn with me?"
"Snarky forum browsers, won't you mourn with me?"

Plus it's hard to mourn for/with a bill who brought it on hisself: that diaper-filling mountain of a life-sucking Auggie Joop didnt ask to be born after all

When exactly did Billy become all sunshine and rainbows in his lyrical content anyway? Seems like it started with Zwan and continued all the way through the Pumpkin "reunion". Has he ever addressed why the drastic shift?

It sucks. Not only can he not sing anymore, but the lyrical content is embarrassingly bad. If he's not ripping cool guitar work with Jimmy then he really has no redeemable quality as an artist anymore.

I wish he would just give it up already. Go the GnR route, have a successful reunion tour and then ride off into the sunset.

He acts passionate about not wanting to be a nostalgia act, yet that passion doesn't translate into the work at all. He clearly doesn't have anything left to say. He's gotta embrace the only thing he has going for him, and that's the old material.

You forgot:

"Aging Gen-Xers, won't you mourn with me?"

I don't mind the sunshine and rainbows per se, but everything else has gone downhill to the point where that makes it seem shitty

The 2001 versions of El Sol were really nice

Lol no, I'm also referencing the now.

I mean the notoriously pompous Billy Corgan is now declaring that he be called William Patrick Corgan for crying out loud. Only difference is that nobody cares anymore.

Yeah I was just joking.

Billy is silly. I'd feel bad for his fall from grace if he hadn't landed on Airplane Mode. Now I just hate him, consumed as I am by the twin fires of hate for bElli and lust for Airplane Mode.

I love how you're basically trying to torture yourself into thinking that you like this song. God bless you child.

The last dump I took was better than Monuments, so comparing something to that album isn't saying much.

Maybe, but I don't think so. I rag on his stuff just as much as the next netphorian. It just feels like he gives half a shit in this song I think. That's a low bar, yeah, but one he hasn't met for a while

For the record I'm not like listening to it over and over or anything. But once in awhile when this thread is bumped or whatever I'll listen again

it's "song for a son" minus half of the half he put into that one.
